Gods Amazing “mays” from Psalm 20
Written by Celia Barlow
In verses 1-5b of Psalm 20 David prays seven prayers over his people starting with the word “may”.
May the Lord:
- Answer when you are in distress
- Protect you
- Send Help from the sanctuary
- Grant Support from Zion
- Remember and Accept your offerings
- Make your plans succeed and give you the desires of your heart.
- Grant all your requests
The results are in verses 5a-9.
- Victorious shouts for joy
- Knowledge of salvation
- Answers from heaven
- Trust in the name of the Lord (better than trust in worldly things)
- We rise up and stand firm but those who put their trust elsewhere are brought down.
We can pray these prayers over our church, family, friends, and nation.
